All about
MONASH

Setting boundaries does not always come easily though, the Monash precinct is generally bounded by the following suburbs:
1.  Mt Waverley
2.  Huntingdale & Oakleigh
3.  Clayton
4.  Mulgrave
5.  Clayton South
6.  Springvale

With these suburbs of Boundary 1 overlapping three of the local government areas (LGA) including:

 1.  City of Monash,

 2.  City of Greater Dandenong, and

 3.  City of Kingston,

the area of City of Monash overlaps most of these suburbs. Thus, in some cases, it would also be useful to look at the data on this particular Local Government Area.

Based on Census 2016, we found that the most common occupations in City of Monash are professionals, clerical workers, and managers. In fact, managers, professionals, community and personal service workers rounded out the LGA’s top three jobs on the rise over the past five years. On the other hand, technicians, clerical workers, and drivers are the top three jobs in decline from 2011 to 2016.

Public open spaces are areas such as parks and recreational reserves, public gardens, nature reserves, civic areas and promenades where everyone has the right to visit without being excluded due to economic or social conditions. Open spaces are important as they provide places for people to meet, socialise, play and connect and access to these areas is associated with increased physical activity and improved mental health.

Walking and bicycle riding uses minimal fossil fuels and is a pollution-free mode of transport. Not only that, they make commuters happier and more productive, according to recent study at RMIT.

The Index of Relative Socio-economic Disadvantage (IRSD) is a general socio-economic index that summarises a range of information about the economic and social conditions of people and households within an area. Unlike the other indexes, this index includes only measures of relative disadvantage. A low score indicates relatively greater disadvantage in general. For example, an area could have a low score if there are: many households with low income, many people with no qualifications, or many people in low skill occupations.
